On-Campus Resources


Counseling Services has cultivated an interactive resource collection for the use of our students, faculty and staff. The Resource Library includes more than 60 titles (books, workbooks, and materials) on mental health and wellness topics that can be checked-out for use during the academic year.  The space also offers a quite retreat in which you can discover mindfulness and stress relief tools and strategies. 

The Mental Health Resource Library is located in Cedar Hall South, Suite 102 (next to the Counseling Services office) and is open Monday-Friday, 9am-4pm. For more information on resources available, contact Counseling Services at 980-598-1710 or by email.


ThrivingCampus is an online referral platform to help connect students to mental health care providers and specialists in their campus and home communities. We have partnered with ThrivingCampus to make it easier for our JWU communtiy to connect with off-campus providers. Students can:

  • Browse and filter providers based on personal needs and preferences 
  • Get answers to common questions
  • Reach out to community providers and connect with mental health professionals

ThrivingCampus is a resource dedicated to building a community committed to improving student access to mental health care.

Disorders & Academics

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 prohibit discrimination against individuals with disabilities, including mental disorders. Johnson & Wales University works with students to provide accommodations appropriate to their documented disability when they choose to disclose it.

Counseling Services does not diagnose disorders for the purpose of academic accommodations; documentation must originate from an appropriate professional provider not related to Johnson & Wales University.

If you are considering seeking accommodations, contact the Center for Academic Support. Advisors will assist you with the documentation process and provide you with ongoing support.
